Janome to sponsor the Members’ Challenge for 24/25

The Embroiderers’ Guild are delighted to announce that the Members Challenge for 2024/25 will be sponsored by JANOME​

We will be adding a new award category to reflect JANOME’s involvement and their passion for machine embroidery​

Deborah Shepherd, Creative Director of JANOME, will also be joining our panel of Judges​

Commenting on the Members Challenge, Deborah said “It’s all very exciting, we are delighted to be joining the Guild for this year’s Members Challenge.”​

JANOME are often asked by their customers “Why would I need all of those stitches.” Deborah loves to think JANOME machines have inspired some creative use of these stitches and hopes to inspire others to experiment and be bold!​

“For the Janome category we wanted to encourage the use of all types of machine embroidery stitches and therefore the JANOME award is focused a little differently from the Val Campbell-Harding Award for best machine stitching”.​
